Natural Hazard Hotspots (IMAGE) American Geophysical Union Caption A new study finds more than half of the US built environment is at risk of impact from natural hazards, largely due to development in hotspots of high exposure to earthquake (magenta), flood (cyan), hurricane (grey) tornado (yellow) and wildfire (orange). The probability or magnitude of natural events is assumed to be constant over the entire study period (1945-2015). Credit Inglesias et al. (2021) <em>Earth's Future</em> <a href="Inglesias et al.
